In this talk, Dr. Debbie Sharnak (Assistant Professor of History and International Studies, Rowan University) will explore how soccer reflected national malaise under authoritarian rule, how the dictatorship attempted to use the sport to invoke nationalist sentiment, and how opposition actors used soccer as an avenue for resistance.
